We like to get dinner on the table in a flash and this lentil kale soup is a perfect option. I'm loving the options for quick-cooked legumes. Enter the lentil! It's so versatile to use in recipes. Use them in soups, casseroles, salads, and even appetizers. They're so nutritious for you, as well. With 18 grams of protein in 1 cup, 15 grams of fiber and less than 1 gram of fat, they are a fantastic choice if you're eating a plant-based diet.
Eating lentils on a plant-based diet is a easy option, especially when products on the market make it to easy for you. Take, for instance, these pre-made lentils from Trader Joes. You can, of course, make them yourself and they are one of the quicker legumes to cook.
I love how the kale in this lentil kale soup becomes so tender. It makes enough to keep for left-overs or to serve to guests.
